Hey! So we are FINALLY not homeless anymore!!!! YAY!!! haha we moved in on Saturday! Its wayyyy creepy though....so its this SUPER SUPER old house....like built 100 years ago,...and everything is breaking....and S (The 75 year old lady who bought the house) isn't moving in for another week or so....so its been WAY creepy livin there alone. haha we listen to Mormon tabernacle choir ALL night! Haha But this week was crazy busy!!!! So L (The lady who drinks like crazy and smokes like crazy and lives alone) called us bawling one night because she just found out she is gonna lose her house. So we went over there and just hugged her while she sobbed and sobbed. It was sooo sad....but it ended up being SUCH an amazing night. We shared with her a bunch of scriptures and prayed with her 2 different times, and each one of us was crying. You could feel the spirit SO strong in that room. She now is keeping EVERY commitment we give to her! Its AWESOME. She reads from the B.O.M ALL the time now and we are getting her to come to church next week hopefully! SO cool!! So we met this old lady named G. She is a Lutheran and a hard core one. She won't let us leave her with a b.o.m.....but she does let us read with her from it every time we come over! That's HUGE. She wouldn't do that before. So we are workin with her. Its been crazy hard cause everyone here is SOOOO into their ways....they are way into their religion...and we get the door slammed in our faces all the time...haha its been kinda depressing so instead we make jokes out of it. Haha the best is when they peek through the window, make eye contact with us, and sit and stare at us till we leave. Its real sad. haha but oh well. Or we have people let us in "Cuz we are just soo darn cute" but don't want to hear a thing we have to say. It's kinda frustrating but its funny cuz we always somehow slip a scripture in and get a conversation going so that's always good! They just need to let us in and we can work some magic! haha;) but We are progressing really well with L and D. D has been keeping all her commitments and we are doing a church swap with her sunday!!! She will come to ours if we go to hers! She prayed to know if the book of Mormon is true and she got her answer, it is! she also knows joseph smith and president Monson are prophets. We just need her to realize that if the book of Mormon is true, all of it is!!
